A three-pound Chihuahua mix named Tink is being praised for helping police catch a Christmas Day fugitive.
The dog’s adventure began when four suspects who were fleeing police crashed a stolen minivan into a hillside.
Auburn [California] homeowner Wendy Anderson says Tink, her son’s dog, found a suspect hiding under a neighbor’s motorhome and chased him into the woods. Her son and husband directed a law enforcement helicopter to where the man was hiding.
Tink is a Pomeranian and Chihuahua mix.
